Cloud Control
Ramaswami, Rama; Raths, David; Schaffhauser, Dian; Skelly, Jennifer
Campus Technology, v25 n4 p22-24, 26-32 Dec 2011
For many IT shops, the cloud offers an opportunity not only to improve operations but also to align themselves more closely with their schools' strategic goals. The cloud is not a plug-and-play proposition, however--it is a complex, evolving landscape that demands one's full attention. Security, privacy, contracts, and contingency planning are all issues that must be addressed. In the second of a two-part series, "Campus Technology" looks at how IT professionals can make the business case for cloud computing while addressing ongoing concerns about taking their institutions into the cloud. It analyzes the financial aspects of a move to the cloud, as well as potential stumbling blocks. [For Part 1, "Diving into the Cloud," see EJ946293.]
